Free Intro Meetup in May! Click here.

“Awareness through movement” is the theme that characterizes the therapy created by Moshe Feldenkrais. This approach attempts to “better integrate the connections between mind and body” and to “relinquish habitual movement patterns that cause or contribute to chronic pain.”

In the 1 1/2-hour presentation (Intro class) we will learn about the Feldenkrais Method through both discussion and experiential movement.

Each of the following one-hour classes in the 6-class series will be focusing on developing flexibility and coordination. Open to students with any level of experience (including those who are new to Feldenkrais). The one pre-requisite is to be able to get up and down from the floor without the use of a support, i.e., on your own power. We will be doing mat work.
